Interestingly, every notebook in this house that is better than a P75 supports
using an external monitor for dual screen action. Nobody uses it though. I
don't because my notebook has Win95 (the notebook is supplied by work this way,
although I keep hoping to be able to get a Win2k upgrade).

It is kinda important to note that not all G4s have Altivec, only Motorola
G4s. On the upside, IBM G4s have better FP performance. Why was that
important? I forget. ;(

I have never mocked Macs, although I have been heard to mock MacOS Classic.
This should help save me a lot of embarassement. Sure, some people at school
may try to mock me, but most of them are pud-thumpers anyway.
